Antonio Conte was selected as the successor of Jose Mourinho on April of 2016 as he will be one of the main figures in charge of pushing Chelsea back to the top spots of the Premier League.
Taking into consideration the recent drop of form that Chelsea suffered, trying to get them back into shape and spark life back into the team is not going to be an easy task to accomplish but according to Gianluigi Buffon, Conte is going to be able to make it happen.
“Conte is a big coach and I’m convinced he will be an excellent one at Chelsea. A Conte team is strong in defense and works constantly, day to day. Conte is a coach with a very simple idea. For the players he makes it very clear. He wants to play without risk in the defensive line and to exploit the opportunities to score goals when they come.’’ Gianluigi Buffon said as he voiced his confidence in the Italian manager Antonio Conte.
The managerial task of Conte in Chelsea will begin when the 2016 Euro’s reaches it’s end but right now Antonio Conte is focusing in pushing Italy as far as possible in the international tournament.
Italy is competing in Group E along with: Sweden, Belgium and Republic of Ireland and so far, the Italian side has snatched 2 victories from their opening 2 matches of the competition and have already qualified for the next rounds of the 2016 Euro’s.
Antonio Conte became a coveted manager back when he guided Juventus to 3 successive Serie A titles and it was because of this fairly impressive accomplishment that the head chiefs of Chelsea opted to offer him a managerial contract to the Italian and with the task to position the Premier League club back as one of Europe’s elite clubs.
